About the neighbourhood
There is full kitchen in the house for whom likes to cook in the evening. Owen, full size fridge, dish washer and washer / dryer is in the house. There are two air conditioning in the bedrooms for nice and comfortable sleep. You will have the whole house for your self and enjoy the beautiful facilities after your long day exploring our amazing city Istanbu
Getting around
Just two miles north along the Golden Horn from Eminönü – the side-by-side quarters of Fener and Balat. Century-old Ottoman houses lean against each other in a kaleidoscope of reds, blues and greens. And art galleries and design shops dot the area along the water. Like the rest of Istanbul, Fener-Balat is changing. Unlike much of the rest of the city, though, the changes don't – yet – involve condominiums and shopping malls. Nor have rents skyrocketed as much as in other areas that have retained an Ottoman flavour. This is why the quarter has become a cool hangout and a recognised design district; last autumn, tours of the area were a main event at the Istanbul Design Biennial.
